Chris Rock declines to file police report after being slapped by Will Smith at Oscars

11:01, March 28

Chris Rock has decided not to file a police report against Will Smith after the King Richard actor hit him in the face onstage at the Oscars on Sunday—at least for now, Deadline reported.

Los Angeles Police Department officers on the scene at the well-guarded event at the Dolby Theatre spoke with Rock soon after the ABC telecast ended, sources confirm. If Rock had filed a report with the LAPD and Smith was charged with assault, the newly minted Oscar winner could have faced up to six months behind bars and a fine up to $100,000.

In California, simple assault is categorized as a misdemeanor. Rock still has up to six months to file a report.

“LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program,” the police said in a statement. “The incident involved one individual slapping another,” they added. “The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.”

Separately, the Motion Picture Academy issued a statement regarding this incident.

“The Academy does not condone violence of any form,” it noted on Twitter.
